October Retreat 2003

The retreat started on Friday, officially at check in, unofficially long before that. Thursday afternoon I arrived with Anne from England and Anne from Tennessee, after a bit of sightseeing in route (and I will stick to that story!) The rest of the ladies were shopping on the way to Bird-in-Hand, and arrived with lots of packages to prove it.

Friday morning the Annes and I did some shopping and sightseeing.

When everyone had finally checked in and settled down, we started our Three Dimensional Tessellated Autumn Leaves.

Which do you think Michele is thinking in this photo?
a. I'm first in line
b. I want that piece over there too
c. Do I really want this all?
d. Boy this stuff is heavy
e. Does this red go with everything else?
f. Why am I buying all this?

After dinner we went back to working on our autumn leaves



Janet showed us all a really neat way to make coasters.

After breakfast and some more shopping on Sunday (there are a few shops open locally) we finally started our houses.
